How did you get started as a makeup artist?
I studied theatre design, and got my BFA at UCLA and had a desire to do makeup and hair. After college I started assisting an artist who worked primarily in editorial and fashion, and have now been an independent artist for 6 years.
When was your big break in the industry?
When I got M.I.A. ready for the Grammys back in 2009. It was such an amazing experience, and helped establish new clients and accounts.
When did you start airbrushing?
I started airbrushing in NY when I was an assistant to a makeup artist who actually used TEMPTU. She began teaching me the basics and then I really started gaining more knowledge on airbrushing from then on (around 2008).
I have been using airbrushing for 5+ years.
What do you love most about TEMPTU products?
TEMPTU gives that flawless coverage while using minimal product. You can use as little as possible but still see great results. I find that TEMPTU is one of the best brands for minimal makeup.

Any pro tips on airbrushing?
Learning trigger control is vital. Learn how to use the gun, and how much product comes out when the trigger is in different positions. Also, I use the S/B makeup on a regular makeup brush to apply makeup; it has a very nice consistency.
What is your favorite beauty look?
Spring! I love that super fresh/pinched cheek with a bitten lip look.
Where do you find beauty inspiration?
I get a lot of my inspiration from nature and living by the beach.
